Polokwane - Polokwane City players are running the risk of getting their salaries cut should they fail to retain their ABSA Premiership status.

City still stand a good chance to participate in the top flight next season though. They will feature in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) and National First Division (NFD) relegation/promotional playoffs, starting on Wednesday night.

Boebie Solomons's men finished second from bottom in the PSL this past season, failing to avoid the playoffs by a single point.

The club's corporate and communications manager Patrick Baloyi confirmed the news to Sport24 in an exclusive interview.

"There will be a player salary cuts, but only if we don't win the play-offs," said Baloyi.

"It's just logical and it happens like this even in some big clubs. We can't avoid things like this.

"The amount of money you get from sponsors in the PSL is different from the ones in the NFD. Hopefully it won't come to that."

Baloyi also revealed that the team is ready to face NFD side Milano United in its opening game of the mini league.

The two sides will square-off at the Athlone Stadium in Cape Town on Wednesday night.

"The preparations for tonight's game are going well.

"We have a full squad in Cape Town at the moment and there are no injuries at all.

"We are ready to fight for our PSL status," Baloyi.

The third team involved in the playoffs is another Limpopo Province outfit, Black Leopards.

Lidoda Duvha will open their campaign against United at the Giyani Stadium on Sunday before facing Rise and Shine in the Limpopo derby next week Wednesday at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane.

Kick-off for Wednesday's encounter is scheduled for 19:30.
